Side Impact Collisions
Fresno Car Accident Lawyer
When a car crash involves an impact point at the side of a vehicle, the results may be catastrophic. In fact, a side impact or angled collision may be more likely to cause serious injury or death to the occupants of a vehicle, due to the vulnerability of the vehicle from these angles. The front or rear of a vehicle has more stability in the event of a collision, while the sides are left vulnerable. Even with side airbags of other enhanced safety features, a victim of a side collision may suffer catastrophic injury as the vehicle literally crumples inward.

About Side Impact Car Accidents in Fresno, California
A side impact car accident is more likely to occur at an intersection, typically caused by one car violating a traffic light, stop sign or otherwise failing to observe the rules of the road in regard to the other driver's right of way. The front end of one vehicle may collide with the side of the other vehicle, constituting what is typically a more serious type of side impact collision. The vehicle that is hit in the side will be likely to sustain the brunt of the impact, but occupants in either vehicle may be injured. In other situations, the sides of both vehicles may collide with one another, meaning both vehicles will sustain comparable damage if they are of a similar size and weight.
